Alright, so I may be overreacting...

I've been "planning" on introducing a bottle for about a week now. LO is 6 weeks.
Am I crazy for not wanting to do the introduction? I'm very nervous it will have a negative effect on our latch. I also honestly don't want to share the time we have together.
We have a few weddings that i have to attend in August that LO will not be attending. So grandma will need to feed him. I was told by the LC that a bottle should be introduced by 6w.
I'm thinking I'm the one who needs the umbilical cord cut :mobile smiley:
Any advice? Any thoughts? Am I the only one who feels this way?? Thanks to all in advance!
Btw: he hates the pacifier...
EDIT: so we tried a bottle successfully. Was hesitant at first but saw that it produced milk and downed it. He took two ounces like a champ. He is finishing his meal nursing. Thank you for your stories and suggestions! It's great to know he will take it if needed!
